    Send zip code & distance, receive list of zips back?

    I'm new to Mappoint webservices and would like to know if it's possible to send the service a zip code and a maximum distance (like 10 miles). Then have it return a list of zip codes that fall within the 10 miles.

    Can this be done?

    thanks

    Hello,

    No, what you're looking for is a proximity search using the postal code center points, for this you need the FindNearby method, which can only be done against a customers uploaded data sources or one of the commercial POI data sources, however, all the postal code center point data exists in other data sources. If you have all the centroid data at your end then this is pretty easy to do, the MapPoint SDK contains the client side code to do the Great Circle Distance calculation.
